After 11 years , the  daily postings here now add up to over 1000 (with already well over 1 million visits). This  makes it hard for many visitors to this site to know what is here and what is generally more important. to choose. Some of the sex abuse testimonies – which are most credible to those who know the details of Sai Baba’s behaviour, interviews and from insiders at his ashrams – are among the most damning reports, not only because they are many and from around the world, but because they have led to a collection of sworn testimonies and affidavits… which it was never possible to present in any Indian court since Sai Baba was constantly protected from indictment from his devotees at the very highest level in India. Here are links to some of those testimonies:-

Testimony about Sai Baba and his Hostels for Boys  and more testimony from this ex-’form boy’ The former student who was abused constantly at Sathya Sai Baba’s college in Puttaparthi, who also describes his sex abuse by Sathya Sai Baba himself, continues to report details and reflections about his time at that college. He is now a professional living in India and remains anonymous for obvious reasons of harassment by Sai devotees, of which he had had his fill, though his full identity is known and confirmed by Conny Larsson and myself.

Sathya Sai College: ex-student tells of awful culture there  A valuable account to inform those who were at the colleges what others experienced. Much was unsaid about Sathya Sai Baba because of the extreme censorship, the very strong punishments that were meted out to students who talked, up to and including their death.

Testimony from another ex-Sai Baba student – one of  a series of  revealing e-mails from a former Sai student who contacted me  so I might know more about the situation as it was at the Sai colleges. The identity of this person is also protected for reasons that are now well-known (and become more evident when you read the following account)  In the following t.t. tells how the murders were perceived by one who was studying there at the time.

A summary of most of the testimonies is found at  Many young men claiming sexual contact with Sathya Sai Baba– However, there have been more than are mentioned there (eg. Christopher St. John, W. Glad), some of which have been stated by signers of the so-called Sai Petition (search page for Dilip Narain, Alvaro Filippo Michelon, David Juliano, Michael Smith, Veronica Isdacsson, Meenakshi Srikanth, Rosalia Malagelada de Never, Paul Throne…)

One Response to “Lest one forget the nature of Sathya Sai Baba’s behaviour with male youth”

  1. In fact, i keep wandering about the fact that Indian Swamis are very well informed about the nature of sexual abuses in sai baba’s ashram by the great guru himself and they keep silent… Is this some kind of misunderstood tolerance for abuse and crime? When I was in Moscow and met Oleg Torsunov, who has his spiritual father and guru in India somewhere near Rishikesh, he was well informed about this pattern of scandalous behaviour in some other ashrams. His words to me in 2006 were: “Many people come to Sai Baba’s ashram because they are looking for God. They are thirsty for spirituality. But instead they receive sexual abuse. They get shocked and since then they can no longer live a normal life.” The problem of a cruel sexual abuse is not a novelty in the life of some other Indian Swamis as well. One who was the founder of Babaji line (I can’t remember his name) used to rape Western young females. Not one disciple got pregnant from him and finished their lifes in mental asylums. These were the stories I read in the books when I stayed in India for 5 months. With the photos of them etc… Written by Swamis themselves who still have at least some decency to disclose the true facts.

    Reply: Yes, there are very many swamis and other spiritual claimants in India (as well as abroad on the Indian model) who are sexual abusers, and many have even been convicted of that, as well as of murder. See for example The Dark Side of very prominent Hindu gurus Robert Priddy
